The local brew-lover's guide to all things hoppy, malty, and chug-worthy

About This Blog

Welcome to The First Draft — a column devoted exclusively to all things beer. Yes, that’s right, from taste-tests to profiles of brewers (and homebrewers) to expert advice (hello, Craft Beer 101), we’re going county to county, city to small town to uncover all the sudsy stuff you need to know. Heck, we’ll even let you know which brewery has the coolest looking T-shirt in town. You can expect reviews, food and beer pairings, roundups, trends, expert advice, homebrewing, profiles, big beer events, best nights out.

To make sure we don’t miss a thing, we’ll also have updated information, breaking news, fabulous photos, and special guest bloggers. Cheers!
